Grand Wagoneer by Classic Gentleman, Internationally recognized as a leading buyer, restorer and seller of low mile excellent condition Grand Wagoneers, presents another beautiful vintage Wagoneer in stunning Midnight Blue Metallic. Just a 3 owner example, with the first 24 years in Florida along with a pair of owners split between Tennessee and North Carolina. No tough winters for this southern belle that has just 80,081 miles
The pricing model for Grand Wagoneers has been climbing steadily for years now and recently, accelerating. The market value for individual pieces revolve heavily around three areas. Firstly low mileage , secondly condition and thirdly, the right color. When we find a Grand Wagoneer that ticks off all the right boxes, like this one, we make the acquisition and spend the time and treasure to bring them up to Classic Gentleman standards.
The Midnight Blue Metallic paint is in beautiful condition, redone by a former owner just a few years ago and still presents nicely. The buyer’s popular prejudice, in the traditional Grand Wagoneer world, runs so heavily in favor of the color blue that their inventory turn rate is 3 times quicker than most other colors. The way the blue works against the wood siding and sand color interior, blends naturally into a vintage Wagoneer look. That classic wood siding, sourced from Team Grand Wagoneer, was just applied by us and is bordered with the original wood trim. That original wood trim isn’t in as new condition but still reflects just low mile usage and wear. Many collectors value keeping the original factory trim in place, with it’s factory peg holes and wood grain look, that are not found in modern replacement trim. For that reason, we try to keep it, when we can. The original wheels and center caps were redone when the Grand was repainted and show just light wear from that time til now. The front grill frame and the grill insert are new, just fitted by our team here. The remaining exterior bits like the bumpers and chrome bits, display just normal ageing.
The cabin is finished in the popular Sand color and is in excellent condition. The leather seats are as beautiful as the images portray. All of the carpeting on the floor, both in the cabin’s seating area and the cargo area, is new. Likewise the cargo area sides and interior tailgate are all wearing new carpeting. New Grand Wagoneer floor mats are also included to protect the new carpeting. The matching headliner is also brand new. Speaking of the headliner, please note that the overhead console temperature and compass readouts are not operating. Not that anyone ever looks up at those anyway. The power seats, power door locks, power windows and power mirrors are all working properly. Same goes for the heat and air conditioning and even the cruise control. The AM/FM/Cassette player is also operating like it’s 1990 all over again.
The engine, transmission and the 4 wheel High and Low settings have all been serviced and are performing just as they should. Take a close look at those engine images, that is one of the cleanest engine bay and motor presentation of any Grand in our inventory. The mechanics on this one have been looked after religiously over the years. Our precisely detailed garage service invoices covering all the mechanical and electrical works that were organized and sorted here are available, via email scan, to interested parties. We don’t spend monies on the appearances of undercarriages as most all of our buyers are planning on driving and enjoying these Grands regularly. Normal wear, aging and surface rust will be present and all classics will pass stringent New York State inspection guidelines. Still, this one being a all southern, snow free piece, wears one very solid undercarriage.
Carfax & Autocheck both confirm the low miles are actual.This one has traveled a remarkably low, under 3,000 miles per year. Both Carfax & Autocheck also show no accidents ever reported along with just three owners, all in the sunny south.
